Simon Rimmer’s Chewy Choc Chip Cookies


Who doesn’t love a deliciously chewy chocolate chip cookie? They really are the perfect comfort food that will help clear your mind of the stresses and worries of day-to-day life. Simon Rimmer has given us his fool-proof recipe to ensure cookie perfection each and every time.

This recipe can be really flexible too, so if you’re looking for a healthier alternative why not try replacing the chocolate with some dried fruit like raisins or cranberries, or dial down the sugar content and replace with a natural sweetener like honey.


  • 100g granulated sugar
  • 165g soft brown sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 115g melted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence or extract
  • 185g flour
  • Half a tsp baking powder
  • 100g milk choc chips
  • 100g dark choc chips (if you can’t get choc chips then just chop up your favourite dark and milk chocolate bars into chip-sized pieces)


  1. First, pre-heat the oven to 180c.
  2. Whisk the sugars, salt, vanilla, and butter until smooth
  3. Add the eggs and whisk for a further five minutes
  4. In a separate bowl, mix the baking powder and flour together then fold into the wet mix
  5. Once combined add the choc chips
  6. Cover your mixture and chill for at least an hour, or overnight if you can wait!
  7. Divide the mixture into 10-12 evenly sized balls
  8. Line a baking tray with baking paper and place the balls at least 50mm apart
  9. Bake for 12-15 minutes until the edges are starting to turn brown
  10. Cool until you can’t wait any longer



These cookies are best served warm, either on their own with that afternoon brew, or as an indulgent dessert with a scoop of your favourite ice cream.
